Washington Capitals Captain, Alexander Ovechkin, has decided to skip this year’s NHL All-Star Game in San Jose and will sit out a mandatory one-game suspension in the game prior to or immediately after the break. Ovechkin released a statement thanking the fans and explained that he needs the rest. The All-Star game bleeds into each team’s mid-season break and Ovechkin, 33, will now have a full week to recharge his batteries. The Russian has 29 goals in 38 games this year and 636 goals in 1041 career games.
